Black Creek Pioneer Village, Toronto

4.2
Step into 19th-century Ontario at Black Creek Pioneer Village, featuring original buildings from early settlers to the province. Overlooking Black Creek River, the village is the creation of B. Napier Simpson, an architect devoted to the preservation of Ontario heritage. You'll see lots of structures that belonged to the Strong family, who used to own the property. The thoughtfully laid-out village includes a barn from 1809, a water-powered mill, a church, a blacksmith shop, and other distinctive structures from the time period. You'll also have the chance to see period furniture, meet the animals that live on site, and visit the restaurant and brewery. Put Black Creek Pioneer Village into our Toronto road trip website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

    Great place to take the kids. Staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. Paid parking was $7 for the day, payable by credit card at the gate, or you can pay at a small ticket booth close to the gate (which is not convenient at all). There's a really cool brewery in the basement of one of the buildings that offers tasting flutes for $5. The farm, printing house, half way house and mill stood out as really cool places for us.

    Went Tuesday after 2pm and it was free! There aren't as many character/ story people those days but it's still nice to walk around and see everything

Where to stay in Toronto

Most visitors stay in the historic neighborhood of Old Toronto, as the central district offers unparalleled access to the best attractions in the city and several metro stations within walking distance. If you're looking for a different taste of Toronto, stay in the trendy neighborhoods of West Queen West or King West Village, popular for their nightlife, arts, and cafe scenes. You can embrace Toronto's multicultural charms by staying in Chinatown, perhaps the city's best location for foodies.
